Abstract: With the escalation of skilled international migration since the late 1980s, the subject matter has emerged similarly as a growing field of academic inquiry. Nevertheless, while the relocation of skilled workers has become prevalent with globalisation, accounts of such migration continue to be narrowly focused on several themes. In contrast, by concentrating on mainland Chinese professionals, this essay will seek to describe the intricacies of skilled migration. Furthermore, as it has developed into a middle class phenomenon, skilled international migration must be evaluated from a highly contextualised framework. Consequently, as it has declared its objective to become a talent centre, Singapore is an ideal case concerning the processes in the recruitment, production and employment of skilled international labour. © 2009 BRILL.
